An invader to watch for!

An interloper from foreign climes out to destroy honey bees. Report if seen and give it the heavy boot treatment! Poor old honey bees have had a rough time of it lately.

There was one spotted in East Yorks a couple of weeks ago.

Unless it has a big "A" on its forehead I expect amateur do gooders will end up killing more native hornets than the Asian variety.
